2015 GD Policy Book
Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Published annually, the Great Decisions briefing book highlights eight of the most thought-provoking foreign policy challenges facing Americans today. Great Decisions provides background information, current data and policy options for each issue and serves as the focal text for discussion groups. For more information, go to

The groups are limited in size and begin in January. Members are asked to commit to joining by paying for their books in September/October. Books are ordered in the fall and generally, the only time to join a group is prior to January. New members may be added if there is an opening; however, they may have to order their book directly from the Foreign Policy Association. Our Great Decisions discussion groups meet once a month, in a group member’s home, with one member facilitating the discussion.
